Window Trim



Today I spent a little time driving around the village checking out the exterior window casing of various old houses. I found the ones that had a bit of notable cornice detail caught my attention.

Here's one I liked:


I came home and did up a version for one of the windows in the back of the house. Once it was up, Nance and I looked at it and decided that there was maybe a little too much drama at the top. We also thought it would make sense to try it on a larger window that is more representative of the average. So I spent the latter part of the day working on another toned-down version. I'll get that up tomorrow.

Joe doesn't know it yet, but once I work out the details on this, he's going to be the guy making up the trim for the windows while I get ready to insulate. Joe's due back tomorrow.

Window replacement represents one of the more substantial investments you can make in your home. The replacement of old or under-performing windows can effectively reduce your monthly utility costs and give your home a bit more curb appeal. There are a wide variety of window replacement options to choose from, including vinyl, storm and custom wood windows as well as bay and bow windows.
